Kaiyodo Revoltech Wolverine 6-inch tall action figure with X-Men style yellow and blue costume

Wolverine (born James Howlett, commonly known as Logan and sometimes as Weapon X) is a mutant who possesses animal-keen senses, enhanced physical capabilities, powerful regenerative ability known as a healing factor, and three retractable bone claws in each hand. Wolverine has been depicted variously as a member of the X-Men, Alpha Flight, and the Avengers. The character appeared in the last panel of The Incredible Hulk #180 before having a larger role in #181 (cover-dated Nov. 1974). Wolverine then joined a revamped version of the superhero team the X-Men, where eventually writer Chris Claremont and artist-writer John Byrne would play significant roles in the character's development. Artist Frank Miller collaborated with Claremont and helped to revise the character with a four-part eponymous limited series from September to December 1982 which debuted Wolverine's catchphrase, "I'm the best there is at what I do, but what I do best isn't very nice."

This is the upcoming Figure Complex Amazing Yamaguchi Revoltech Wolverine. New official images and details have been released for the figure by Kaiyodo. The Wolverine figure will stand just over 6 inches tall and comes wearing his Astonishing X-Men style yellow and blue costume. The figure has 33 points of articulation. Wolverine includes three interchangeable portraits, multiple sets of hands, adamantium claws that can be swapped between the hands and a cigar. Also included will be a figure stand and a slashing effects piece.

Wolverine is typical of the many tough antiheroes that emerged in American popular culture after the Vietnam War; his willingness to use deadly force and his brooding nature became standard characteristics for comic book antiheroes by the end of the 1980s. As a result, the character became a fan favorite of the increasingly popular X-Men franchise, and has been featured in his own solo comic since 1988.

Revoltech Wolverine figure is expected to be released in September 2017
